Planned Parenthood is back in the news again. Okay, not the “mainstream” news, I admit. But what else is new? The “mainstream media” isn’t about to pillory a statement of unfettered liberalism, so we rely on other sources – LifeSiteNews, LiveAction, LifeNews – to learn of Planned Parenthood’s corruption. In this case, we rely on The Criterion, a Catholic newspaper in Indiana.
Marianne Anderson, a former Planned Parenthood worker, reveals harrowing details of her two-year employment with the largest abortion provider in the world.
NOTE: Sifting Reality DID NOT conduct this interview. For clarity, these excerpts are not centered.
Q. When and why did you start working for Planned Parenthood?
A. “I started working for Planned Parenthood in 2010 to start up their conscious sedation program [an extra cost]. Plus the job was very close to my house.”
Q. Did you know what they were about, what they did?
A. “I did. And I must admit I was kind of on the fence about abortion. I think a lot of it came from working at Wishard [Hospital], and seeing girls that had attempted abortion themselves and ended up with hysterectomies, or boyfriends beating them because they were pregnant. My thought was, ‘Well, you need a safe place. People shouldn’t be doing it on their own. And people are going to be doing it anyway, so why not provide them a safe place to do it?”
Q. When did you start having qualms or misgivings about working for Planned Parenthood?
A. “I started feeling uneasy working there when people came from national in New York City to teach us the conscious sedation process. It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: ‘Abortion all the time!’ I thought, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ That was about six to eight months after I started.”
Q. How many abortions are done at the Georgetown facility per day?
A. “In the upper 20s to low 30s, including medical abortion by pill. Abortions are done there every Tuesday and Friday, and then they alternate between Thursday and Saturday.”
Q. Were there ever any difficulties with the abortion procedures?
A. “Several times, there were difficulties with the abortions while I worked there, where they had to call the hospital to come pick the woman up. One girl almost bled out. She was passing clots, her blood pressure was dropping, A lot of the cases we had were from excessive bleeding or reactions to the sedation. When we had to call 911 for an ambulance, we were told never to say the word ‘abortion’ because they don’t want that broadcast. They knew that the calls were recorded, and could be made public.’
Q. What was it like working there?
A. “It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work. We would get yelled at if we didn’t answer the phone by the third ring. They would tell us we’d be fired [if we didn’t] because they needed the money.”
A. “You have to have so many [abortions] a month to stay open. In our meetings they’d tell us, ‘If abortions are down, you could get sent home early and not get as many hours.’”
A. “They would allow girls to have ultrasounds that were obviously way too far along [the legal limit for having an abortion in Indiana is 13 weeks and six days]. They said, ‘If they want to be seen, you just put them through, no problem,’ just taking advantage to make money.”
Q. What experiences stick with you?
A. “One young girl came in with her mom. She was about 16. Her mom had made the appointment. That’s not supposed to be how it works. It’s supposed to only be the patient who makes the appointment. I checked her in, and she thought she was there for a prenatal checkup. The mom was pushing it. She blindsided her own daughter.”
A. “This guy brought in a Korean girl. I had no doubt in my mind this girl was a sex slave. This guy would not leave her side. They could barely communicate. He wanted to make all the arrangements. During the ultrasound, she told one of the nurses that there were lots of girls in the house, and that the man hits them. She never came back for the abortion. I always wondered what happened to her. One of my co-workers said, ‘You’re better off to just let it go.’”
A. “These girls would start crying on the table, and Dr. King would say, ‘Now, you chose to be here. Sit still. I don’t have time for this.
A. “One doctor, when he was in the POC [products of conception room], would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. ‘Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me.’ It just made me sick to my stomach.”
Yes, I know. Much of it sounds as though it came from a Stephen King novel. But this is the reality of abortion, folks. It’s disgusting. It’s a bloody, limb-ripping reality that half the country fully supports. But I tend to think people would change their views if the cruelty of abortion were reported by the mainstream media. Maybe ignorance is bliss…
